This is usually the red flag for me to stop trying.
Another favorite is "how do they still have snow"
I have come to the conclusion that people who hate on it or peoples interest in general, just don't have a passion for anything in their life other than watching reality TV shows on the idiot box all day.
I personally could care less about what passion someone has, but have a passion for something and work hard. I don't know about anyone else, but I enjoy talking to anyone about what their passion is even if it is not skiing. Then I am not as ignorant about their interest, but that is just me. The attitude of people who have a true passion for something whether it be yoga, ice skating, or painting is much different than those who don't.
